Man, i'd really like to see an 8.

Discussion in '2001 Honda NSX-R Concept' started by SBchevy4evr, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. no one can deny the impact the NSX has had on the supercar community. up until the release of the first one, most supercars were unreliable (relatively) and had very few creature comforts. but man, i'd really like to see an 8 cylinder engine in this thing. maybe its just my american blood, i don't know. but imagine 2 S2000 engines in the bad boy (basically what you would get)... oh man. an NSX thats actually quiet fast....
    that would be cool.<!-- Signature -->

    I think you are right, but a V6 is suitable for only 280 hp limit.<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. Re: Man, i'd really like to see an 8.

    Look, Zanardi, i agree. I don't think cultural bashing is a good thing, but i think with durabilty and economy both figured in, the V8 engine is probably one of the best available. The NSX has made an impact on the SuperCar community, but it needs more than a face lift to keep up. Sales, especially in the US, have been struggling lately...
    Perhaps its because of a little 405hp terror recently released? <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    But this face lift is only to get more attention, so by the time the New NSX comes out, There will be another impact and everyone knows it.<!-- Signature -->

    Honda should put more power from that V6.

    It should at least be 335Hp.<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. Re: Man, i'd really like to see an 8.

    Why 335? Why not 350?<!-- Signature -->

    Right on! It's too bad that many of the Muscle car guys and Enzo fans can't come to term, and that is the NSX DID make a HUGE impact on their world, both in terms of styling and engineering excellence. Perhaps that's why this car's been compared to this car and that car. They do this simply because they're envious of waht the NSX IS and they spare NO opportunity missed to pick fights against it with their faves. The thought of a Jap Exotic Supercar offends them, just as the thought of the Z06 is a tad better performance-wise offends some import fans. It's not about how this car of mine outperform that car of yours. Rather its about national and cultural pride that leads to racial bashing. I think all of this madness has gone too far. Too bad most folks here can't see things in an open-minded way and has to pass judgment without even actually driving one. Totally immature.

    As far as a V-8 in the Next Gen NSX, that can be possible, although I've heard that the DN-X (Dualnote)could've been the test bed for the Next NSX, with its 3.5 liter V-6 that spits out 300ft/lbs. torque and 300HP, PLUS electric motor that assist ALL 4 wheels that adds another 100Hp and ?? ft/lbs. of torque COULD BE THE PLAN !! Honda hopes to sacrifice a little bit of ultra performance in a rumored 3.6 liter V-8 that is capable of spitting out 420+HP for 100% practicality and Environmental friendliness by "Hybridizing" Next NSX that can run 50 miles on a gallon! This goes to tell you what's more important to Honda than just pure raw performance. They WILL NOT sacrifice PRACTICALITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLINESS for an extra 20-40HP increase by doing it the V-8 (phased out) way.

    ummmm... I saw that too, a red top dualnote style with kinda rsx like head lamps.<!-- Signature -->

    but I don't want to have more than that until they change their tyres.<!-- Signature -->

    1997 Moter Trend Magazine (May issue) had an article regarding the new NSX that said a European source (apparently high-ranking), said that car's V-6 3.2 Liter engine could soon be replaced with a V-12 with a 4.0 or a 5.0 Liter displacement.

    US sources then claimed that it was more likely that the engine would be replaced with a V-8, 4.0 liter because of the NSX's priority to sustain a low weight on the car. The wheelbase therefore, will be required to be lengthened for the longitudial location behind the cabin of the car. Moter trend then says that despite this, a shorter rear overhang should keep the length of the car to 174 inches so not to worry.

    The picture is an example of what the NSX could look like. The long tail " may be lessened by introducing buttresses aft of the B-pillars".

    It then goes on to say that the shape will only emerege and possibly be executed after the evaluation of three seperate proposals coming from the Honda design studios located in Japan, Europe and the US.

    V8 would be possible, but V12? no way, the most is V10.<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. Re: Man, i'd really like to see an 8.

    I read they ARE going to put in a 4.0 liter V8 in 2004 with the totally redesigned nsx... it will be an 05' model. Im sure it will be very fast and aslong as they keep the price tag around 80 it should be even cooler. I just hope they keep the great style the car has right now.

    Well, I just want the lights to be changed...<!-- Signature -->
     
  17. Re: Man, i'd really like to see an 8.

    Hopefully no one buys the new NSX... or at least I'd feel sorry for them if they did.

    It'll be like the guys who bought the Mustang Cobra R without airconditioning or anything just for a cheaper Cobra to come out this year iwth a m90 eaton blower which'll out perform it like nothing...

    I believe the reason we all want to see a v8 nsx with a detuned F1 Honda motor is for the shere ability to finally beat the typical straight line performers on the street <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
     
  18. Re: Man, i'd really like to see an 8.

    That's because of the limit of power, now it's fine to have a V6 with 280ps, but if there's no limit, it needs a bigger engine, do you see any Ferraris have a V6? how about Lamborghini? the smallest of the Lamborghini is a V10.<!-- Signature -->
